Outlook of the global multi-layer ceramic capacitor (MLCC) market
The global market for multi-layer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) will grow moderately during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of almost 3% by 2020. MLCCs are extensively used in DC-DC converters, which put a load on the components in the form of high frequencies and high levels of electrical noise. Since MLCCs are widely used in the manufacture of electronic devices like consumer appliances, smartphones, tablets, automobiles, and industrial machinery, the launch of upgraded electronic products and an increase in semiconductor components in existing consumer electronics and automotive products will aid in the growth of this market during the estimated period.
Technavio’s market research analyst has estimated eminent factors, such as the miniaturization of electronic devices, to spur the prospects for market growth until the end of the forecast period. Due to the development of the semiconductor technology, the trend of miniaturization of consumer electronic devices is gaining continually traction. Miniaturized MLCCs reduce the space requirements and weight of the devices, and also helps to improve their capacitance. Consequently, MLCC manufacturers have been compelled to focus on the development of lighter, smaller, and higher-capacitance MLCCs as it will help them to retain their market position.
Segmentation by application and analysis of the MLCC market
- Consumer electronics
The consumer electronics segment currently dominates this market, and will account for more than 67% of the total market share by 2020. According to this market research, factors such as the emergence of next-generation smartphones, tablets, and consumer appliances like LED TVs will drive the growth prospects for this market segment until the end of the forecast period.
Geographical segmentation of the MLCC market
In this market research study, analysts have estimated the APAC region to be the largest market for MLCCs during the forecast period. The presence of a vast number of original equipment and device manufacturers in this region is a significant factor that will spur the prospects for market growth in APAC. In terms of revenue, the MLCC market in APAC will account for more than 84% of the total market share.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
The global MLCC market is intensely competitive owing to the high level of competition among the existing players and new-generation semiconductor vendors. Due to the presence of a vast number of local manufacturers in countries like China and India, the level of competition is intense between the organized and unorganized sectors. The vendors in these countries are producing MLCCs in bulk due to the availability of cheap labor and raw materials.
